Botanical Drawing Workshop at Hollengold Farm June 2014

Hi Everyone, 
We are excited to announce another 3 day workshop at Hollengold Farm in September. The weather is usually great and many lovely things will be blooming in the garden for inspiration and of course delicious food to eat! Here are some photos from the recent workshop we had here in June.

Daily drawing demonstrations.

Located in the Hudson Valley of NY State.


Join botanical artist, instructor, and author Wendy Hollender at her home and garden to study the techniques outlined in her book: Botanical Drawing in Color, A Basic Guide to Mastering Realistic Form and Naturalistic Color. Create drawings in colored pencil and watercolor pencil from the plants growing in the gardens at Hollengold Farm. Use a “Grisaille” technique for undertones in a neutral color and then layer color on top to create realistic plant portraits. This technique is very immediate and materials are simple, allowing the artist to work easily in multiple locations, and is especially useful for work in the field. 

Where: Hollengold Farm, Accord, NY
Dates: Friday Sept 19th - Sunday Sept 21stTime: 10:00am to 4:00pm
Farm fresh lunch included.
Workshop price: $300.00 includes lunch.
